Former Georgia governor candidate Stacey Abrams has been named co-chair of the Black Voices for Black Justice Fund.
Abrams is joining the Black Voices for Black Justice Fund (BVBJ), which is an initiative that supports Black leaders doing the work to fight racism across America. Since launching in 2020, fifty Black leaders have been rewarded with BVBJ financial awards to use in their efforts to fight racial injustice.
“I am honored to join BVBJ because it is leading by example. Unlike most philanthropic giving for racial justice, the Black Voices for Black Justice Fund puts Black leaders in the driver’s seat with Black activists on the ground who understand how racism plays out in their community defining both the problem and the solutions.”
Abrams has been a critical figure in voter rights. Her books “Our Time Is Now” and “Lead from the Outside” landed on the New York Times bestselling list. Abrams has also served as Democratic Leader of the Georgia House of Representatives for seven years before running for Georgia Governor.
The Black Voices for Black Justice Fund is now looking for nominations for its third round of awards. Those who wish to learn more about the fund may visit www.blackvoices.org.
